Did we learn anything from 9/11? The short answer is:No.
Yep. We learned the Stockholm Syndrome is real. Many vapid Americans have come to identify with the Muslim jihadists and resist the efforts of righteous Americans who are trying to defend their nation, culture and heritage.
No. We learned nothing.
We admitted swarms of Moslems into the country. Would we have admitted Nazis into this country during WWII?
We allow CAIR to operate in the US instead of shutting it down and imprisoning its leaders as we did with German-American Bund.
We have morons constantly supporting Islam and enabling Islam.
We’ve learned nothing. in fact, we have worked hard to avoid learning anything.
Yep. Islam is a religion of peace. El presidente taught me that. The MSM amplified it. It must be true.
We have learned that we SHOULD have expelled every single practicing Muslim from the US, including those born as US citizens who have converted to Islam. Non-practicing Muslims are acceptable, but only on condition they do not later choose to resume practice of their cult.
Not many Muslims in Japan.
We have many problems our current government cannot acknowledge, much less address. Not a big problem. Our NEXT government will.
Islam began in 610 AD.
It has been a blight on mankind ever since.
Even Genghis Khan thought it was bad.
In conquering civilizations, all were allowed to keep their religions and local governments and pay annual taxes, except Islam. The Khan had so many problems with Islam and its followers that his only option was to raze their cities and enslave or kill their populations.
Too many people fell for the Mighty Mouse cartoon schtick: allow evil enemies who want to kill you to fly away, heal, and grow stronger so that they can come back to attack you again. I never did understand that philosophy.
I thought/hoped that at the very least, the USA would become more isolationist in relation to the Islamic world after 9/11. Instead the opposite happened. Funny how the opposite often happens. When the AIDS crisis began in the early 80's one would have thought there would be a backlash against gays and their abhorrent lifestyle. Instead, the whole country is becoming gay.
I remembered thinking the USA was lucky to have G.W. Bush as president rather than Gore in 2001. Now I don't think it would have made any difference if Gore had been POTUS.
“Yep. We learned the Stockholm Syndrome is real. Many vapid Americans have come to identify with the Muslim jihadists and resist the efforts of righteous Americans who are trying to defend their nation, culture and heritage.”
We have become country where a significant portion of the population is begging the government to come and take our guns. What else needs to be said?
I learned that a LOT more of our politicians are NOT on our side as I thought.
They really don’t mind of thousands of we “little people” get slaughtered... as long as it helps THEM accomplish their goals of power and personal wealth.
I don’t know who “we” is but anyone with half a brain learned quickly that we are dealing with a deadly enemy in Islam and its goal of Worldwide Islamic Supremacy.
Patriots should not flinch at fully defeating Jihadism in and toward America.
Christians should be aware that the century of 2000 being the the beginning of the third millennium AD and the overall seventh millennium of man will be the millennium of Rest on Earth as God rested the seventh day for his works (Heb 4:3,10) - the Day of the Lord (”day” being 1000 years) begun with Islam’s “wake-up call”.
The End of the Age and the Day of the Lord is at hand. On the horizon is the first thing that happens - the seven-year Tribulation of the Wrath of the Lamb towards those on the earth who have rejected Christ as their Savior and Redeemer, God using Islam and Satan himself to dominate and kill. Such unimaginable horror as the earth has never nor will ever see (Matt 24:21).
But after the seven years comes 1000 years of the reign of the Prince of Peace - peace and happiness for 1000 years as the world has never known. Contrast God’s love with his love, grace, and mercy - seven years of wrath versus 1000 years of peace and mercy.
These things will launch soon IMO in the latter part of this century I think. These are the things we should be learning form 911 and beyond.
The nation elected partially Muslim-raised Barack Hussein Obama just 7 years after 9/11/01, and reelected him despite the harm he had already done to the country. Obama was and is a self-described Marxist and ally of the Islamists. Yes, he had crappy opponents in McCain and Romney, but that’s an excuse. The Left continues its long March. So the resounding answer is no, we haven’t learned a thing.
Sure we did.
We learned Islam is peace.
The Saudis are close and warm allies.
We learned to get groped and felt up at airports.
We learned that we can only be safe if the Government can hoover up every single phone call, letter, email, text message etc.
we learned that we need a new government agency (DHS) with a creepy nazi name, the manpower of the USMC and twice the budget.
We learned that when a nation attacks you, you should launch wars in 5 or 6 other countries but maintain warm relations with the one that attacked you.
We learned that the best way to investigate the attack was to pit Gorelick on the commission even though she was directly responsible for one of our biggest weaknesses.
We learned that after the cold war ended we needed a new enemy to replace the USSR until Russia could be properly cultivated as a new enemy.
We learned that we could smash Germany and Japan in 3.5 years, but that after 18 years in Afghanistan, we are about to hand over power to the same people in charge when we were attacked on 9/11.
We learned that the best response to a Sunni attack is to send soldier to spread Sunni influence over secular middle east nations like Syria, to import 2 million moslem enemies into America, and build 1000 new wahabbist Sunni mosques in America.
Yeah... I’d say we’ve learned a lot.
Never forget... sadly, America never learned anything from what took place.
Just look at what has taken place since 9/11 and where we are now as a nation concerning the threat of Islam and Muslim terrorists within our midst.
After all the Kumbaiya, flowery speaches, and memorial services were over, Islam and the socialist/communist left in and outside of America began a concerted, well laid, well financed campaign to promote Islam, NUTTER and SILENCE everyone proclaiming the FACTS and TRUTH about Islam, its blood thirsty founder Mohammed, its doctrine of violence, terror, conquest, and hate, and its blood soaked history.
While making Islam the wronged victim, and turning those expressing concern and exposing the genuine threat Islam poses into the REAL THREAT: dangerous, enemies of progress and enlightenment; crazy Christians, and American flag waving zenophobes and Islamophobes,
Today, all over America, public schools and universities are openly, actively promoting Islam and indoctrinating our children and young people, while doing everything within their power to reject and stigmatize Christianity and Americas Judeo-Christian founding and heritage.
And the penultimate insult to everyone who died on 9/11, their families, and all of America: we now have Muslim congressmen who openly proclaim their antisemitism, and hatred for America, Christians, Christianity, Jews, and the nation of Israel while suffering no blowback, condemnation or consequences for their vile, hate-filled beliefs and rhetoric.
Never Forget... we never REMEMBERED. Tagline
1. Islam is a religion of peace.
2. Americans should respond to 9/11 by going shopping.
There was no reason to take anything from my government seriously anymore after hearing that idiocy.
Yes we did. We learned the U.S. is full of appeasers who would not be unhappy to find their heads getting lopped off.
